Keep Families Close When It Counts

Home Fund

The Home Fund supports core mission services for families at San Diego's Ronald McDonald House. Temporary lodging, meals, and other life necessities help to sustain families whose lives have been turned upside down by their child's diagnosis and treatment. By providing an unrestricted gift to our Home Fund, you are supporting our highest and most urgent needs as determined by our volunteer Board of Trustees. 

Your gift to the Home Fund will help families find stability and peace of mind with rest, nourishment, and connections with others in similar situations. Best of all, you'll help hospitalized children benefit from the love and care of their families when it matters most.

San Diego's Ronald McDonald House and COVID-19

Community support has been vital to keeping our House open to families whose children face the most serious of illnesses and injuries, whose treatments could not wait for COVID-19 to abate. These families - in the midst of a terrible pandemic - simply have to be here to support their child in the hospital. 

Throughout the pandemic, our House has never closed to these highest need families. With our hospital partners and following CDC, state, and local guidance, we've implemented a comprehensive, multi-stage plan to allow for safe operations amidst pandemic surges, and now as the vaccine arrives in our community.


Nothing matters more to families during a child's medical crisis than being together and helping their child heal. You can make a difference right away in keeping families close through your gift today.

Thanks to the JMS Fund, Watkins Wellness, Nancy Stanley and Family, Christi and Chuck Miyahira, Helen and Harry Miyahira and HM Electronics, Inc., and an anonymous donor, up to $560,000 in gifts to this campaign will be matched, making your gift go twice as far. 

Your gift will have DOUBLE impact through the match! For example,

  • Your gift of $100 will bring in $100, for $200 impact!
  • A gift of $1,000 will bring in $1,000, for $2,000 impact!

Thank you for your caring and generosity in keeping families close when it counts.
